The Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta (YKD) Tribal Broadband Consortium was created by Tribes for Tribes, to connect and serve YKD Tribal communities by installing and providing broadband internet services that strengthen Tribal sovereignty and increase economic independence. Join for free today.
We are leaders advancing broadband connectivity solutions for YKD Tribal communities. We are a non-profit Tribal organization (as defined in 25 U.S.C. § 5304(l) ) made up of YKD Tribal members who have authorized the Consortium to provide broadband internet services on their Tribal lands. The YKD Tribal Broadband Consortium encourages all eligible tribes to become members.
The NTIA grant deadline is approaching fast and we’re making preparations. Don’t miss out!
Broadband internet allows for greater tribal sovereignty, autonomy and control of your future high-speed internet solutions that you own and deliver to your tribal citizens.
We are a non-profit consortium with one mission: to collectively bring together YKD tribal communities who want access to affordable high-speed internet. We partner with member tribes to build and adopt broadband services on tribal lands.
Our broadband expertise is your advantage. Our partner ecosystem support and services can help you architect, deploy, expand and use broadband internet for your community.
Wireless broadband (Wi-Fi) connects a home or business to the internet using radio signals instead of cables.
Fiber optics carry lots of data using pulses of light through strands of fiber at the fastest speeds.
Satellites provide a communications network from space! Low-earth orbit is the closest orbit to the Earth's surface. LEO provides high-speed internet connectivity regardless of geography.
Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL) transmits data over traditional copper phone lines. Copper creates resistance over distance, limiting speed.
The FCC defines 'broadband' as internet connectivity at minimum download / upload speeds of 25Mbps/3Mbps.
An area is considered 'unserved' by the FCC if it does not have access to broadband. The YKD is considered unserved.
